Could not figure out a way to have a NIS slave have an independent map.
The closest solution looks to be an entry in auto.home as
and blocking NFS on each of the building gateways and or having each
building NFS head export only to the subnet it is on.
However, the restriction is for all the file systems on the NFS heads to be
laid out similarly ( /export/home/< >)
